Paper Abstract

A variety of refractive and reflective optical focusing configurations for application to laser fusion targeting experiments are discussed with particular attention given to system related constraints. Consideration is given to energy damage thresholds, refractive material availability, space envelope, fabrication requirements, and focused spot uniformity.
